Nanotech NYC is for anyone interested in nanotechnology and the development of nano-enabled technologies. Topics will cover all stages of the product development life-cycle, from the newest nanomaterials being developed to the integration of nanotech into products in a range of industries, including biotech, alternative energy, consumer products, wearable tech, IoT sensors, and more. The Meetup is an effort curated by those running Nanotech NYC ( https://www.nanotechnyc.com/ ), a digital platform aimed at fostering the growth and advancement of the nanotechnology community in the greater New York City area and providing educational and professional resources for the general STEM community.
Message us if you have event and sponsor ideas or if you would like to help organize. Cheers!
Grab yourself your favorite Halloween candy and join us for a special virtual Nanochat as we explore the science behind ghost hunting, curious physical phenomena and oddities in nature. Our spooky science talk will be a relaxed and fun-filled journey into a wide variety of topics. The talk will be tag-teamed by Francesco Lavini, Frederick Pearsall and Jacob Trevino (bio’s below). The presentation will be accessible to all in attendance and we encourage individuals from all careers and backgrounds to tune-in. The event will be streamed via Zoom. Zoom information and link will be shared with those that register.
